Workbench Plan - Build a Small Bench

Small WorkbenchDespite its small size, this workbench is not meant for kids. In fact, the only thing small about this bench is the length of the benchtop. This is a plan for a heavy-duty workbench with a rock-solid frame, a thick, sturdy top, two vises, and an optional storage cabinet. Perfect bench for doing serious woodworking, especially if your shop space is limited. It also makes a nice carver's bench.

Step-by-step workbench plan shows you how to build an optional storage cabinet that fits inside the base to keep tools and materials within easy reach.

The overall size of this workbench is 33"wide x 24" deep x 29-3/4" high. This project appeared in ShopNotes No. 30.
